The Broward Folk Club has been presenting their monthly music concert at Your Big Picture Cafe (4900 S. University Drive, Davie, FL, 33328, 954-252-5644, www.YourBigPictureCafe.com) for the past two years now. They and the café have both grown tremendously during that time. They have been so successful, however, that we can no longer provide them the amount of space they need for their concerts. So, starting in January, the Folk Club will be in their new home at the Sample Road Tavern in northern Broward. You can follow all of the club’s great activities, including their monthly concert series and their upcoming, annual Folk Festival in January at www.BrowardFolkClub.com.
In the folk club’s absence, and to keep music thriving at the café, we have entered into a co-sponsorship with our long-time musical friend, Dr. Bob, to bring you Dr. Bob’s Music Land Concert Series on the first Friday of every month. This is a free concert series with no admission fees!
The Cafe’s 2014 beginning lineup will be:
January 3, 8:00-11:00pm:
Raiford Starke (www.RaifordStarke.com) is known as South Florida’s Premier Outlaw musician whose music is so good it should be illegal.
February 7, 8:00-11:00pm:
Nicole Noel and Chance Meyer
Nicole and Chance are a new, energetic duo who have captivated the hearts and ears of everyone at the café who has had the opportunity to hear them. They will be guest stars performing at half-time during Rairford’s January concert, and you can hear them live on Michael Stock’s Folk and Acoustic Music radio show on February 2nd (WLRN, FM 91.3, 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm).
March 7, 8:00-11:00pm:
Diane Ward (www.DianeWard.com) is the queen of South Florida’s acoustic music scene, and she has been regularly featured at such luminary South Florida venues as Luna Star Café and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts during Chrystal Hartigan’s Songwriters Showcases.
Our Music Showcases with Len Perry on the 2nd Friday of every month from 8:00 pm to 11:00 pm. This January 10th is Dr. Bob’s website release party (www.DrBobSongs.com), and there will be an open bar courtesy of Dr. Bob with 2 free drinks per person.
We also have a Youth Open Mic on the fourth Friday of every month from 7:30 pm to 10:30 pm, and every Saturday from 7:00 pm to midnight we bring you the best Adult Acoustic Open Mic in town, with hosts Len and Lance Perry.
